I've been having problems with my iPhone 6 for about 3 months now (photos and music disappearing, extremely slow, etc.), so I thought that the iOS 10.3.1 update would solve my issues. It ended unmaking things worse. I'm not having these issues anymore, however I haven't been able to log into iCloud since this update (but my iTunes account is working and I've been able to purchase from iTunes and the App Store perfectly fine). My contacts, email, reminders, photos, iMessage, etc. are all not functioning properly or at all right now, and I'm extremely frustrated as it's been like this for about a month and a half. I've tried everything to try to fix it, but nothing works. It won't even let me log out of iCloud (the "sign into Apple ID" popup comes up every time I try and it just won't log out), and I've done a hard reset what seems like 100 times. Yesterday, I saw that there was another software update (10.3.2) that included "iPhone bug fixes", so I thought that this would finally fix my phone. Nope. I'm still having the same iCloud issues as before. I've even tried deleting my phone from my iCloud account via System Preferences on my MacBook, but that hasn't worked either. I logged on to iCloud.com and it doesn't even list my iPhone in my account there. I've basically tried everything except a factory reset and restore from a backup, which I'm not even going to attempt because my phone also doesn't seem to be backing up to my MacBook properly (which is an issue that started with all of the other problems I mentioned at the beginning of my post). Also, I'm not sure if this is related, but since I updated to 10.3.1, under the "use cellular data for:" section in my cellular settings, the only apps listed are FaceTime and Wallet. If anyone else is having these issues, please let me know if any fix worked for you. I'm hesitant to call Apple Support because the only "help" I've ever gotten is them telling me to do a factory reset (which I've never needed to do because I've found actual fixes elsewhere). There's clearly a compatibility issue with the new software and iPhone 6's, because I've seen others with similar issues.
I have worked on this issue with the following devices iPhone 5, SE, 6s & iPad 5th gen (2017). Only had the issue with known networks not coming from an Apple router. The 10.3.1 update was to fix some vulnerabilities with wifi which may have an effect on stored wifi networks. I have found that forgetting a known network then reconnecting has resolved the issue for me so far.
There are only 2 possibilities : either an OS issue, either a hardware issue. I have a 6S and started having same issues since iOS 10.3.1 update. It just won't connect to my wifi network anymore. I tried every recommendation (reset network settings, re-install iOS from iTunes etc.. no way, doesn't work). Then i wondered why it was connecting everywhere without issue, just issue at home (while i have 4 other Apple devices and they all work fine at home!!!). This meant no hardware issue, nore an iOS issue as i completely restored. I tried one thing that worked ! First you need to make sure you have a PIN code set up on you SIM card (you will understand later why i am asking this). First restart you iPhone, when it prompt to unlock your SIM, don't do it, just ignore. Then try to connect to wifi network --> guess what? It worked straight away. Then i enabled plane mode and disabled it again so my phone asks again to unlock the SIM.
iOS 10.3.1 is officially available on April 5, 2017 and has attracted a lot of fans with the newly added features. But recently, some users complained iOS 10.3.1 update crashes most apps on iPhone, including Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, Email and etc. System incompatibility, caches and cookies accumulated, code error or third-party service can all be the reasons for app freezing on iPhone. Luckily, with Tenorshare ReiBoot - professional iOS system caring software, you can easily fix app crashing on iPhone, iPad and iPod after update without losing data.
Another simple method to fix iPhone apps keep closing immediately by themselves after iOS 10.3.1 update is to reboot your iOS device. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons simultaneously for at least 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo. After restarting iPhone, you can launch the stuck apps to see if its working now.
I had this issue with 10.3.3, did not see the error message but my iPhone just reverted to the main screen and kept telling it was up to date while still telling me there was an update. rebooted twice with no change to this, so after the third boot I also switch to airport mode and turned wifi on.
Quite a few iPhone users complained that the batteries are draining fast in cold weather or while charging with their iPhone after update to iOS 15/14/13 or iOS 10.3.2. Their iPhone is greatly affected by this bug as it suddenly turns off when the battery remaining hits 30%. Although bad battry life is a tricky issue, but here we will share you some ways on how to potentially fix iOS 10.3 battery drain faster on your iPhone 7/7 Plus/6s/6, here's what you can try.
I have a little Korg that I used to plug and play. Uploaded to iOS 10.3.1 and started getting 'not supported' message about 3 minutes after connecting every time. I called Apple support few times to see if their next update will fix it and got a bunch of rubbish in broken English. Very unhappy with this update! I don't understand what is not supported: the adapter, or the midi its self?
From iOS 10.3 there is an issue where the iPhone suddenly refuses to deliver audio through the earpiece (you can't hear phone calls, speaker not working, earpiece not working), only delivering audio when the speakerphone option is turned on, or an issue where no audio is delivered through headphones or the Apple stereo headset, the problem appears to be that the iPhone "forgets" which mode it is in, erroneously thinking that it should still send audio through the audio jack instead of the earpiece.
WARNING !!! do NOT update the latest software for iphone if you have an iphone 5. Update 10.3.1 will continually ask you for to enter your passcode whether you have ever had one or not. It will not restart without one. I contacted Apple eventually through their help web site and although helpful at first and promising to call me back if we got cut off while they spoke to higher authority for a solution. THEY DID NOT. They came back after the first referral saying they needed at least 30 mins or so for me to hold on. I did and got cut off. No follow up and now the help support site seems to have crashed and even blocked my job referral email link they sent me advising me to find an alternative solution!!The only solution offered was to reformat and clear my phone as it had to have a passcode to unlock it after the update. I have had my iphone 5 since they first came out and it has never been locked or had a passcode or a finger print (they kept repeating this question) used.Not sure what to do now so I will go into an APPLE store tomorrow and hopefully they can either have found a fix for this problem or restore my phone to 10.3 which was working fine! Obviously I do not want to loose all my data and more importantly my photos of my new granddaughter who visited the other week.I WILL NEVER DO ANOTHER UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT HAPPY APPLE!!!!!!!!!!
iOS 10.3.1 has drawn a mixed response from the public. One typical issue we have found through Apple Support Communities, Twitter, Mac Forum, and other social media stage, is that a certain number of users are complaining iPhone 7 battery draining fast after upgrade. It seems like poor battery life has accompanied with Apple each time when new iOS update is released, and this is the same with the release of iOS 16. Here we are providing your with 9 tips to fix bad battery life.
I'm not seeing exactly what you describe in the article, on my iPad 4 with iOS 10.3.1. When I tap on Applications, I see the number of apps (100), and "inside", I see the text you list about "These apps may slow down your iPad...". No app names appear directly below that. Then I see in grey text "Updates available". Below that are app names, including apps that I upgraded today. I haven't counted, but I think all 100 apps might appear in this group. This includes major apps like App Store, Remote, FaceTime, Google, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Dropbox, etc. It doesn't make sense to me that these are all 32-bit applications, but it's likely that some of the apps I have installed are. I haven't been able to guess the ordering system for this list. It isn't alphabetical. It isn't by age, install date, or most recent update. 2b1af7f3a8
